Eating like a caveman never tasted so good. You can still order out at restaurants if you are trying to stick to a Paleo diet. Also known as the “Caveman Diet” eating Paleo means only eating foods like meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, spices and healthy fats and oils. We tracked down a few restaurants in The Woodlands where you can easily order a Paleo meal right from the menu.
